WEDDING INSPIRATION: Purple Romance from Lindsey Mae Designs and Blush Creative #PurpleWedding #WeddingOnFleek


We were thrilled to be recently published on Bride Link! The Gilded Gown was selected to provide the perfect bridal gown for a recent wedding photo shoot  held at The Standard, a distinctive event space in the heart of downtown Knoxville, beautifully styled by Lindsey Mae Designs and photographed by Blush Creative Photography.

The creative force behind the shoot, Lindsey had a clear idea of what kind of wedding she wanted: “When coming up with a vision for our styled shoot I wanted to create something that was different than most shoots you see this season! The Standard was the perfect venue with the natural wood floors & the vintage walls. When my ideas started coming together I was looking outside the boxes of normal flowers to find what would come in shades of purple.” 

Lindsey, along with her co-vendors, produced a stunning tableaux of dark wood, lush greenery, pops of silver, succulents, all shades of purple and DONUTS! Heck yeah!!!

Here’s a close up of the lovely, lovely hand-crafted donuts provided by Makers Donuts in Knoxville, TN. Lindsey wanted to find a fun alternative to a traditional wedding cake, and she nailed it with these blueberry confections!

An abundant swag of greenery coupled with two rustic signs, transforms simple folding chairs into a stunning focal point.

Romance and whimsy abound in the beautifully colorful styled wedding.  We adore how Lindsey utilized bold blues, plums, lavender, combined with both modern and vintage details and lush florals to bring her vision to life.  From the wood floors to the vintage walls, natural elements and purple details make this shoot an absolute dream! This spectacular tablescape incorporates all the elements in a stunning way.

The pops of silver and green really enhance the power of purple! We love, love, love the delicately hued china courtesy of Sassy Settings and furnishings from Anderson Rental Company.

 

The adorable couple! The groom is dressed to the nines by Prestige Tuxedo and, of course, the gorgeous bride wears a stunning English Net ballgown (designed by Sweetheart) with a darling net handkerchief layered skirt from The Gilded Gown. Oh, and that AMAZING bouquet is all thanks to Echelon Florist:

 

The beautiful bride, whose look was the artistry of the crew at Bangs and Blush:

We are so honored to have participated with so many talented co-vendors. Knoxville has a fabulous array of wedding professionals.

Rustic Industrial Winter Wedding in Tennessee #RusticIndustrialFarmWedding

__blushcreativephotography_img0164_0_low

Are you dreaming of a winter wedding? If so, we think you will be majorly inspired by this gorgeous styled wedding.

The creative force behind ZStudio Events, the lovely Morgan Zacheretti, recently collaborated with tons of experts in the wedding industry to produce a wonderful winter wedding shoot with a rustic industrial feel. Morgan explains, “I knew I wanted to do a winter wedding shoot, but after a site visit to Cedar Pond Farms, I knew I had to expand on their Industrial Farm style.  I brought in darker colors, black and burgundy, and accented with white.  Including classic and sometimes very simple elements when I style is something I always try to do.  In this shoot, simple elements were the all white place settings and antique lumber carts. This shoot was a dream and I owe it all to the vendors for helping me bring it to life.”

We think Morgan’s impressive vision was perfectly captured by the extraordinary talent at Blush Creative Photography.

Cedar Pond Farms, a beautiful Tennessee farm, located just 25 miles outside of Knoxville and 35 miles from Gatlinburg, Tennessee provided the striking backdrop. Cedar Pond Farms offers a unique combination of rustic and sophisticated: the farmland outside is rustic and added a natural, wintery feel to the shoot, the exterior of the barn exudes southern farm charm and the interior is exquisite and adaptable to many styles…just the right place for an East Tennessee wedding.

And, of course, we feel our well-priced Justin Alexander bridal gown is a luxurious choice for any bride.  Loaded with all the loveliest details including lace, illusion panels, AND ruching; this sweet wedding dress is a winter wedding WIN! [Remember: If you are on the hunt for your very own gorgeous wedding gown, please make an appointment to come visit us at The Gilded Gown!]

The rustic industrial style is evident inside the barn with the raw wood and wire twin stair cases shown below. The gorgeous swags of greenery and glamorous table arrangements are courtesy of Lisa Foster Floral Design. Lisa is a truly amazing floral designer and a super nice lady too. (She made the splendid bridal bouquet as well.)

The stunning bride’s makeup was accomplished by Shiela Moore and her bridal “do” was the work of  Desilee Cassidy. Love, love, love the bold, burgundy lip and loose tendrils.__blushcreativephotography_img0293_low

Sugarbuzz Bakers  provided the deliciously beautiful custom cakes well-suited to the occasion. We love the simplicity of the “naked” cakes offset by the beauty of just a few flowers.

The wedding was held at Downtown Knoxville’s Art Center and Gallery, The Emporium.  The ample natural light, exposed original wood beams, brick walls, and 18 foot ceilings of this 1890s building were the perfect setting for the festive wedding. These festivities are proof that a city wedding with rustic touches rules.
